Join Us for a lunchtime update and conversation about key clean energy bills in Massachusetts. What is happening with our statewide priorities? What are the prospects for a major "omnibus" energy bill this year? How can we best enlist our lawmakers to speed the transition off of fossil fuels?
Two Mothers Out Front leaders will offer updates and perspective on what's happening in the State House. Eugenia Gibbons, a member of the MA Leadership Team, is also the Clean Energy Programs director for MASS Energy and a frequent visitor to the Statehouse. Anne Wright, former coordinator of the Arlington Team, is now Directory of Advocacy and Organizing with Environmental League of MA Action Fund.
We're excited to announce that Mothers Out Front Massachusetts is a lead sponsor of Local Environmental Action 2018. For over 30 years, Local Environmental Action Conference has brought together community leaders, environmental advocates and activists from across New England for a full day of skills training, networking, and inspiration.
We are partnering with Toxics Action Center and Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN) to bring you this event on Saturday, March 3, at Northeastern University in Boston. Purchase your ticket online before February 10 and get the early bird discount.

We're In This Together: Battling for Clean Energy and Fighting Fracking from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts
On Wednesday, March 7th, you are invited to an evening with community leaders from the Marcellus Shale region of Pennsylvania, at the other end of the fracked gas pipelines that connect to Massachusetts. Families, landowners, and whole communities there have been deeply impacted by intensive development of fracking wells and facilities, and their struggle connects directly with our use of fossil fuels in the Northeast. Pennsylvania activists sharing their powerful stories will include Lois Bjornson, Craig Leland Stevens, Brian Latkanich and Jane Worthington.
Free and open to the public. Donations encouraged to contribute to building-use fees and JP Forum expenses.
Wheelchair accessible. Sponsored by Clean Water Action, Mothers Out Front, the Mass Power Forward coalition, Resist the Pipeline and the Jamaica Plain Forum.
